New Phone Scam
A citizen from Fort Wright was called with a new scam call angle. The message said it came from the “Kenton County Sheriff’s Department” said there was “an issue in your neighborhood” and to call 859-242-3510.
When you call that number the answering machine says it is the Kenton County Sheriff’s Department Civil Division and instructs you to leave a message with your return call information. So far only one call and we are not sure what information they are trying to obtain. Please do not give out personal information to anyone on the phone without verifying who they are.
If there is a problem in your neighborhood the Fort Wright Police Department will contact you and rarely by telephone. The Kenton County Sheriff’s Office does not routinely answer calls for service in Fort Wright. They do serve Civil Papers and warrants, however the telephone number above is not correct. The administrative number for the Kenton County Sheriff’s Office is 859 392-1800 or call Dispatch at 859 356-3191 or call 911 to report any suspicious activity.
